Thranduil, Elvenking and father of Legolas.

After seeing "The Hobbit", I was just dazzled with the amount of fancy he possessed, haha! So in other words - He had to get down on paper.

Elves… They always seem to captivate me!

It's all pencil work and I added a digital filter to the finished product.

*Size: A4
*6-ish hours.
*Mechanical pencil 0.7
*Pencil 4B, 4B, B8.
* Smudge stick thingy

This is simply beautiful. "Thranduil" has been onscreen for less than 2 minutes - and he's fired the imagination and adoration of millions It's amazing. Do you why?

Åh, kor stilig! Du er kjempeflink. :) Han ser meir sassy ut enn eig kunne forestille meg. Og tenke seg til at han red på en jævla elg! Satt og gliste som en idiot gjennom nesten heile filmen.

Hey, Norge^^
Helt enig. Da eg så han ri på en forbanna elg tenkte jeg bare "Badass". Alvene er mine favoritter i Tolkien bøkene.
